Season 9 is on Netflix.
Watched a couple episodes and Henry is such a little pussy. How did Carol raise a spoiled idealistic douchebag?
Someone didn't kick his ass enough and make him follow directions growing up. Should have dropped him off with Daryl before his balls dropped and he wanted to play "captain save a ho" and risk everyones lives.
How can you be such a pussy being raised by carol and in this world? I will always watch this show but my god are they loose with the execution. Characters are actually getting fatter from season to season....in a world without easily available food
Plus no cars & have to use manual labor/tools. Also, they supposedly arent eating processed foods either.
For reference my best friend lived in London for a year using public transit/walking & eating less and lost 10-15 lbs and he wasnt super fat.
He went from 6'3 225 to 6'3 210 lol
Man, you know the show has improved when people have to resort to criticizing the lack of characters' weight loss because of the absence of processed food and abundance of necessary manual labor.
British food will do that to you.
Now that Henry is dead who is the next annoying character they force as a major part of the storyline?
Well....that seems pretty easy. The whisperer girl
Probably true. Was hoping she gets shuffled to the back like bitch boy Eugene.
Just finished the season 9 on Netflix. What the fuck was that finale...
Been a while since I watched that but the new showrunner seemed to want to use the old GOT format where you had the big episode as the penultimate episode of the season then a bit of a breather episode to tie some things up and set the table for the next season. Of course, we had a blizzard thrown in there too. Wasn't one of the better episodes of the season but it did its job and showed something we hadn't seen before (and should have given where they are but probably just hadn't been done because of where they film).
Back tonight. Interesting enough episode.
Just started watching tonight's episode. That battle formation stuff in the beginning was super corny.
I liked the whisperer stuff last season. Hopefully it continues decently.
I mean, I get it for people who are just completely unprepared to deal with walkers and the potential threat of Whisperers being among them makes the extra caution make sense but it was pretty funny how the "heroes" (Michonne, Daryl, etc.) were just out there by themselves doing their own thing on the edges. That's exactly the kind of stuff these tactics are meant to prevent because it's how Jesus died. In past seasons though that would be the last we'd see of those tactics. Under the current showrunner I'm confident we'll actually see them try that formation stuff against a large group of walkers with Whisperers in it and probably get to see it fail to a degree.
Want to add that one of my favorite parts was when Aaron stupidly charged onto that bridge by himself and almost got himself killed and once it was all taken care of the first thing out of Michonne's mouth was "Well that was stupid." That kind of behavior would have just been glossed over in previous seasons but the people running the show now are smart enough to realize that the people who survived this long wouldn't have survived this long if they were regularly doing stupid shit like that for no reason. It gets addressed and we get a little insight into Aaron's emotional state that led to doing something stupid like that. Nothing groundbreaking but for this series it's refreshing to see.
Tried to go out on her own but her show was cancelled p quick.
This show is still on? Damn
New showrunner has it the best it's been basically since season 1. I thought there were some good bits around season 5 or so and season 6 had some really good episodes but most of 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8 were absolutely atrocious.
Season 9 was really good and season 10 has been maybe a tiny bit below the bar season 9 set so far but still a lot of the season left.
The story arch with the whisperers has been good. Last episode was kind of boring but overall there is some rejuvenated life to the series
The musical montage at the beginning and end of the episode thoroughly pissed me off. Absolutely needless and dumb.
Wow, I actually missed the beginning of the episode. Glad to know it worked out for the best. The montages they tend to do for dramatic episodes (which last episode doesn't qualify for) are terrible and very unnecessary.
I think the show would be even better once they understand that the viewers will never really be emotionally invested in any characters, except for maybe when favorites die off. So the casual manufactured drama is not necessary. Stick to action and shit hitting the fan and resolving said shit eventually.
If only this show was on HBO
Tomorrow night's episode is good (episodes come out a day early on AMC Premiere which means a day early on torrance) and then, based on what happens in that one, the next one should be even better.
I agree that episode 4 was fairly slow.
I noticed that it comes a day early, but it's only 2.0 audio :(
They better have Negan call Beta "Frowny McTwoKnives"
I was two seasons behind but finally caught up. The whisperers are interesting.
So the Dr is a whisperer?
Seems odd. Hasn’t he been with the normal people for a long time?
This is the first season he's been in.
Right but I thought with the time jump it was assumed he had been there for a while? Maybe I forgetting something.
I mean, he's been there probably since around the time of the pikes. So maybe 7-8 months max?
I see. For some reason I thought it was longer. Thanks.
Finally caught up on this season. I find myself really annoyed by how stupid they are. Always falling for every trick or trap, always a step behind. I get they’ll probably win in the end, but can’t they at least be made to look competent here or there?
They all fall down in the cave besides Daryl. Do they yell for him to not come? No. Just let him come join us.
Finally got around to watching the episode and just fuck everything about caves. Also fuck Carol.
Carol is one of those characters that no longer add anything, kind of like Andrea. It’s now time to kill her off.
How is this show still on?
It might be. She obviously has one big thing left that she wants to accomplish but knowing a little bit of how things went in the comics (at this point it's hard to know what they will or won't change with Rick and Carl gone) she's not 100% entitled to that.
It actually got good again once most people stopped watching. Kinda funny. At this point just hoping the current, competent showrunner can work her way to a decent endpoint.
Fucking Carol. Just kill her already
Haven't started the new episode yet, but I remember thinking this last season too
I still enjoy negan.
Hate plot armor in any show. Was zero reason for the former Savior chick not to put her spear through Beta's neck. And then from there we had Daryl and Alpha have a little slashfest only to be saved by Lydia. It's the same shit that annoyed me during Game of Thrones' final 2 seasons. Stop putting major characters in situations they realistically can't survive if you aren't willing to kill them.
I enjoyed the episode but that was super annoying when she had beta dead to rights, put the spear through his neck and weaken your enemy significantly. That or have beta realize he was being snuck up and knife her by surprise.
Just watched a teaser thing for the next episode which I don't normally do and...
I really appreciate the current showrunner making sure nothing is pointless. They showed all the groups back at the beginning of this season I believe doing their training for fighting against hordes that may have Whisperers in them and we haven't seen them use those tactics once. They're going to be put to use in the next episode.
Daryl just went full dumbass. So not like his character. They did the same with Carol last episode.
